Marcus Building Movers

Moving Historic Buildings and Homes


At Marcus Building Movers our company came about through an integral need by Dick G. Marcus, eventual company founder, owner and operator.

In 1975 Dick needed a shed moved. While waiting for a structural moving contractor to perform the relocation, Dick decided to do the job himself. As a problem-solving farmer and skillful mechanic who was known for “thinking outside the box,” he knew he could handle the task. Plus Dick had five sons who could assist him during the moving process.

Buying-out a mover from New London, MN specifically for their equipment, Dick successfully moved his first structure, a shed. From there Marcus Building Movers was established and began to grow, relocating different types and larger structures with every year that passed. Eventually Dick’s three sons (the second generation), Garvin, Marlin and Jerry Marcus, became partners and bought him out.

Over time, technology advancements and industry procedural changes altered our structural relocation business. What was once a business using manual jacks and homemade dollies is now a well-recognized company using efficient unified hydraulic jacking systems, hydraulic dollies and steel beams to move any type of structure.

Today Marcus Building Movers is in its third generation of successful operation. Eric, Dan and Kevin, sons of Garvin, Marlin and Jerry, have taken part in the family business. No matter who’s at the helm, we continually strive to maintain our ‘reputable building mover’ status.
